Pioneering Higher Ground: Designing Native Rooftop Plantings
Registration Eligibility Registration is not limited.
Start Date 01/11/2018
End Date 01/11/2018
Description Why do volunteer native species sometimes colonize green roofs while plantings of those same species often fail? This session demonstrates alternative design approaches based on study of native plant community dynamics in comparable thin-soil environments and extensive tracking of plant performance at pilot green roof projects. This lecture is part of the 29th annual New Directions in the American (NDAL) landscape.
